I don't know your background, but can tell you that when you hang with those of faith, you find the faith based on fact. I have found where the faith turns to fact through various events and actions.
Now let me tell you, I am quite a science novice, and truly enjoy science based info, but there are times science/common sense are just blown out from the reality of what faith based folks come up with. It is a testimony when certain events occur and can not be explained, and yet they were things being prayed for. Financial , medical, family events just happen. It can NOT be overlooked when you see it.

If you haven't prayed since you were 9, I have a challenge for you. Pray fervently and demand God to prove himself to you. You Need Proof! That's what you tell God. Watch out though. You might get what you ask for. Do this seriously and multiple times. You don't need to believe it, but I challenge you to try it.

If you don't take the challenge, you will never know for sure, will you?

Your posts are full of assumptions. You are not interested in rationality and reality. That's fine if you keep it personal, but if you encourage others to favour mumbo-jumbo above science, for instance in medical matters, then you become a danger to the public.

Won't take a challenge, eh Dope?
Fraid of the outcome? Fear the unknown, do you?
It'll show you what "chance" is all about. I understand statistics, and percentages better than most. Also filled you in that I am a science novice, and give it it's rightful place.

I'm afraid that the more of your posts that I read, the less I think you have a grasp on reality, let alone science and statistics.

Just got home from a 8oz rib eye and 3 eggs sunny side up, home fries and buttered up toasts at a truck stop for breakfast. Any suggestion for lunch?
